As summer fades into a distant memory and your hard-earned beach bod disappears under a swamp of layers, autumn can be a little depressing to say the least. But just because it’s cold and wet outside doesn’t mean that you have to look any less glamorous than usual. In fact, a trip to the salon and a positive attitude towards the season of boots, soft jumpers and pumpkin lattes can leave you ready to embrace autumn with a new look.
Ok, so you may have never heard of Balayage before, but you’re probably well-acquainted with its more common name, ombre. As summer turns to winter, what better way to commemorate the transitional season of Autumn than with this two-tone hairstyle? The ultimate complement to AW14 fashion trends, team with bold colours such as mustard yellow, bright orange and navy blue to set your new hair style alight.
Just because you can’t spend Sunday afternoons soaking up the sun in the garden anymore doesn’t mean that you should go as a ghost to the Halloween party this season. Sure, you won’t be able to pass your fake tan off as natural, but who cares? Glowing, tanned skin can boost your whole appearance, and leave you feeling much happier than when your skin looks pale and washed out.
Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage
Feeling all tensed up as you adjust to the colder climate? As your bank balance recovers from the summer fun, you won’t feel guilty about treating yourself to the occasional bit of me time. A back, neck and shoulder massage will release locked-in tension to make you feel healthy and revitalized.
Tired of spending hours on your hair, only for it to spring back into its frizzy form after becoming a drowned rat on your way to work? Invest in permanent straightening and get an extra half an hour in bed on those dark winter mornings, or at least more time to get ready!
Since you aren’t showing off so much of your body at this time of year, it’s the smaller details that let the world know you look after your appearance. Don’t turn up to drinks on Friday night with chipped and tired nails; a quick trip to the salon for a manicure will add a splash of colour to your look. By opting for specialist treatments such as bio sculpture gel, you can also enjoy healthy and colourful nails for several weeks before you need them done again!
Don’t let the wet and cool weather get you down this month. Look and feel great from autumn through to winter, and relax after work with a trip to the salon. From a new hairstyle to gorgeous skin and nails, treating yourself to the occasional pamper session is a great way to blast those post-summer blues and rework your style for the seasons ahead. So go on, get out there and rock it in the cold.
